whenever i give my civic a thrashing just for fun to hit vtec a few times after i park i notice a smell not exactly like gasoline i cant really tell what it is do you guys have any advice on how to fix this or is it normal for an older car (95 civic ex coupe)
Is the CEL off? Are your brakes firm, smooth, and quiet? Is the clutch firm, smooth, and quiet? Are you getting 28-32 MPG? Are your oil, coolant, brake fluid, and clutch fluid levels within normal ranges?
If you answered yes to all of these questions, don't worry about it.
Like i said before. Your cat (catalytic converter) if it smells like sulfur. Smells like gas could be injector orings. Smells like oil check to make sure your filter is tight and you have no leaks coming from any gaskets. Your eyes are your best tools. Meow
noooo they reported my avatar already
i think your right about the gasket cause i noticed a few oil drips in my parking spot =/
im gona have my friend give it a smell today cause i have a bad sence of smell :D also got some spray for the belts at auto zone to see if that does the trick
oh also nope doesnt burn the nose or eyes but its noticeable from about 5 feet away from the car. glad i joined this forum this is the best one for civics that ive found
